Waheela S Frameset

$ 899.00



Waheela® — A suspension corrected drop bar gravel bike that can handle smooth tarmac to rough forest roads. More versatility and value for more miles and more surfaces.

Depending on where, how, and with who you ride, the term gravel can mean any number of things. From smooth ribbons of packed dirt to miles of flint to rutted forest road, gravel is what you make it. Otsos Waheela S was designed from the ground up to be the most versatile gravel bike available.

The first suspension-corrected gravel/adventure bike on the market, the Waheela S will handle optimally with both rigid and gravel suspension forks. Thanks to Otsos patent-pending Tuning Chip dropout system and Lithic Hiili carbon fork, the Waheela S can be built with tires ranging from all-road 700Cx28 through road-plus 650Cx53 to a massive trail-ready 700Cx53 (29x2.1).  A full complement of rack and fender mounts make the Waheela S a capable fast tourer or commuter while Reynolds 520 tubing provides the ride quality that can only come from 120 years of experience tuning steel tubes.

The Waheela Ss progressive gravel geometry borrows a page from the cross-country playbook with increased top tube lengths and shorter stems- maintaining stack and reach while providing a lively can-do attitude on rougher terrain. For those looking to push the limits, Otso has also provided internal routing for dropper seatposts.
